So which one of these pictures do you think I was super confident in? .
The top left I was super lonely wishing my friends would have time to spend with me. The next one I felt disgusting, like a giant fat cow. The top right was after 20 shots and I had to do all sorts of stuff to it just to make it “look good”. I hated everything about myself in the “Hey you’re great shirt”. The middle one, I felt like I couldn’t make it look right, my hair was wrong and I couldn’t figure out what to do with my hands. Next was the night I found out my painting was selected to be 1 of 43 out of over 400 submissions to hang on the club level for the Tampa Bay Lightning and I didn’t think it was worth the honor. Bottom left was my birthday and despite the numerous compliments I hated my costume. Then there’s one where I went paddle boarding and wished I was better at it. Last is a selfie after completing the savage race.
All of those pictures had positive words given to me. All of them were when fun times and great things happened. Yet at one point in time hated each picture. At the time I hated that woman. I lacked the confidence, love and grace I deserved.
So even though I have my moments where I lack confidence they just opportunities for me to grow in my relationship with myself. They’re all moments to show myself love and grace and celebrate the accomplishments and imperfections.
